Does terminating an account remove database(s)?

And, if so, can I reassign ownership of the database to another account?

I want to be 100% sure that a database I used with an account will not be deleted when I delete the account, because I want to delete the account but not the database it used.

Could be problematic due to the way cpanel handles database names, but you could try the option in WHM called database map tool to try to change the user on the database.

Hello, in WHM I have two accounts. One account should be removed but it has database what used by the second account. If I rename a database, will it be terminated with an account or not?

Hello,

I'd suggest creating a backup of the database associated with the account and then recreating it in the account that will be remaining.
